William Mora Galleries, Melbourne - July 1998

During my years as a mural painter I was restricted, for practical reasons, to using acrylic paint as a medium. It is fast drying and loses a degree of its brightness and texture in drying.
 
In this, my first solo exhibition, I celebrate the comparative lushness of oil paint. Before painting murals full time I had worked in the catering industry as a sous chef (having moved on from architecture). Eventually I became more involved in food presentation, designing banquets and enjoying some work as a food stylist with commercial photographers.
 
This exhibition commemorates that period of my life.
